  • Question


    I have a HP Compaq Presario V3000 with Window XP Home Edition. I have a Window XP Professional CD installer and i want to reformat the labtop becouse i have alot rubbish and virus inside.

    When i boot the CD on boot screen, the installation is start as normally. But when Setup the Window is begin and normally will jump to EULA screen, but mine not. It show this screen :

    Window(R) XP Professional Setup

    Setup did not find any hard disk drivers installed in your computer.

    Make sure any hard disk divers are powered on and properly connected to your computer, and that any disk-related hardware configureation is correct. This may involve running a manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.

    Setup cannot continue.To quit Setup, Press F3

    So what should i do now?

    Upon booting your computer, try to start your recovery console, usually hiting the F11 until the options appear. Select recovery from the HDD image that is already on your computer. If not if you have the CD/DVD of the OS then boot from them to do a clean install and wipe out all partions and installing OS on the one partion.
